the added comfort that brings cannot be underestimated.
Rumours have been spreading that I've been leaving them on underneath my work trousers for the added comfort (and protection).
Plus they make my ass look fabulous.
When I've been out doing field work in cold places on cold days I've stuck my cricket shorts on (sans thigh pads) for an extra layer of warmth and (particularly coupled with pulled up football socks, giving near entire leg insulation) that has been quite comfortable.
If they were loose-fitting shorts or the weather was warm, I could see it being quite uncomfortable though.
Something to be reserved for cold days and tight shorts only...
